The Garner CDS-2500A Professional Degausser is designed to erase all formats of media that are up to 6 inches in width. The degaussing field strength switch provides the option to change between high and low field strengths. It is like having two degaussers in one. On low, the CDS-2500A is a continuous duty degausser capable of degaussing over 90 VHS tapes per minute without overheating. On high, the CDS-2500A is a high energy degausser capable of erasing the newest metal tape formats of up to 2400 Oersted.
To start erasing, simply press the “on” button and place the media on the conveyor belt. The conveyor belt will transport the media through the strong horizontal and vertical degaussing fields produced by two degaussing coils placed at 90 degrees from each other (“V” coil design). For added convenience, the conveyor belt speed can be easily adjusted up to 60 feet per minute. At this rate, the CDS-2500A will erase more than 90 VHS tapes per minute. For more efficiency, add the optional FH-4 feed hopper.
For long-lasting performance, the degaussing coils are vacuum dipped and baked. The vacuum process draws the air out of the coil allowing the potting compound to coat each winding of the coil. The coil is then baked “rock hard” to eliminate vibrations that could eventually lead to shorts in the windings of the coil. In addition, two thermal detection units have been wound into each coil to ensure that the operating temperature is safely maintained. When in operation, the coils are cooled by fans which are automatically turned on and off by the signals being sent from the thermal detection units.
